A great event was run jointly between UOFCA and the EA on the history and science of what was once one of the greatest Barbel venues in the country, holding various fish of over 20lbadams mill open day

Adams Mill is not what it once was and the EA team presented some interesting material on what has gone wrong and what potentially could restore it to it's former glory.

In the afternoon attendees got their hands dirty being led on implementing some of the practical measures "in the river".

A gallery of pictures from the day taken by Dennis Hunt are below.

The presentations used on the day will also be attached.

I have also added a link to a Youtube video just demostrating the sort of fish that once brought anglers from across the country to this famous venue.

Recent years have seen a decline in roach stocks on the Grand Union Canal between Milton Keynes and Braunston. Other canal fish such as gudgeon have also seen a major decline in their population, damaging the native fish biodiversity in the area further. grand union roach appeal

As a result, fewer anglers now visit the fishery and iconic waterway creatures such as otters, kingfishers and herons are also less likely to be spotted as roach are an important food source for them.

We need £5000 to reverse this decline in roach population. £5000 will allow us to increase the spawning success of the roach by introducing specially designed mats on which they can lay their eggs. It will also allow us to use boom boats to remove and relocate the non-native fish species zander to other fisheries, reducing predation pressures on roach stocks. If we don’t take action soon, there is the risk of further spread of zander southwards to the Tring summit and beyond.

If you can, please help kickstart the roach recovery on the Grand Union Canal by donating today.

UOFCA has already donated £1000 towards this scheme, so please help us by making a donation on the CRT link here.
